  • Go for it guys you’re better than them, Cote d’l voire is already scared of u

     
  • You think so?

     
  • Does anybody know where this match can be watched please

     
  • Look at that boy in the middle of the back row. Last small boy! Lol. Not sure anyone here is up to 20 years of age in truth. Where did Amoo get these ones from? From secondary school?

    But this jersey is kind of ugly sha. Too busy both the top and the socks. The Russia 2018 was classic, just like the USA 1994 jersey. Don’t know what Pinnick was thinking, except very possibly looking for a fresh avenue to “chop” money.

    Dr Drey, is it looping for you? it seems it stops at about 2 mins 31 secs, every time I refresh the page.

     
    • Dr. Drey 1 month ago

      Yea……unfortunately it is. Im quite sorry about that. Probably the administrators didnt bargain for 6k plus viewers at a go. Otherwise that site has been showing all the matches of the WAFU tournament without a hitch up till tonight. Its rather disappointing.

    Like Kenneth said it 1:0, the Ivorians are on top.

    Na wao,is this the players and coaches we were praising?no single shot on target, players falling here and there,in this first half you can’t single out a very talented player. Then I ask,so there are no longer talents in Nigeria?

     
    • Dr. Drey 1 month ago

      Hehehehe…the ref just saved our butt by not awarding CIV that penalty. Rohr needs to go and learn from Amoo indeed…..LMAO

    strategy and strategem… where are they?

     
  • Proudly 9ja 1 month ago

    If these guys are the best we as a nation can offer then we are indeed in trouble. The #20, 14 are too poor. The defenders can’t defend to save their lives. The referee saved us, it was a clear penalty to the Ivorians, the guy was hacked down inside the box. They are way way better than the eaglets Amoo is a big clown to be honest, how come he didn’t read this wan. We were just fortunate against Burkina Faso, they played better than us but we were just lucky to have scored. Amoo the match reader, how come u nor fit strategies today. He is bereft of idea, same way ladan bosso has no clue, this guy call Amoo has no idea. If Picnic and monkey minister has brain, give a free hand to Manu to raise a good team that will give us entertaining football not this gather and play crap we are watching. See crao, we can’t pass the ball, na to dey lago lago our boys dey lago. Watch how composed the ivoriens are on the ball, just dey tire through us like hot knife on butter. Their #10 and 3 dey run ragged on the eaglets. I reiterate this is the worst eaglet I have seen and trust me I have been watching eaglets for awhile This is shambling, the fact they qualified for the AFCON proper can’t hide the fact that this team is too poor to represent 9ja and the blame should fall squarely on picnic, monkey sports minister and Amoo for embarrassing naija like this.

    its already 2:0. Abeg mek dem come house kon relax joor, lubbish. I know they are kids and should be ebcourage but this is pathetic

      @Omo9ja, come see what your World class coach Amoo is producing for us oooo

  • XXXXXXXXXXPLAY 1 month ago

    THIS IS BELOW EXPECTATION ALTHOUGH I WILL STILL NOT AGREE THIS IS THE WORST EAGLET EVER PRODUCED. I THINK OUR COACHES SHOULD BE MORE DILIGENT IN PICKING PLAYERS BY GOING OUT TO SEE THE PERFORMANCE OF THESE BOYS  THEMSELVES RATHER THAN RELYING ON SOME AGENTS TO MARKET PLAYERS TO THEM , IF OUR UNDER GRADE COACHES CAN LEAVE THEIR COMFORT ZONE TO PICK PLAYERS ON THE STREET THEN WE CAN HAVE BETTER BALLERS THAN THESE BOYS , THAT IS WHAT THE LIKES OF SIASIA AND AMUNEKE DOES. 
     TO THE IVORIANS THEY HAVE BEEN HAVING UPPER HANDS AGAINST U17 NIGERIA TEAM FOR A WHILE BUT WHAT KEEP SURPRISING IS THAT AT THE WORLD STAGE THEY FLOP 
    THEN. LASTLY THE IDEA OF ZONING WILL DEPRIVE AFRICANS TRUE REPRESENTATIVE AS WE ALL KNOW THAT  WEST AFRICA HAVE THE BEST LEGS WHILE GOING TO WAR WITHOUT YOUR BEST MEN ON SIGHT

    Why do we like dinosaurs as coaches in 9ja, don’t the football administrators know that dinosaurs are extinct? The administrators themselves are dinosaurs hence their constant rehiring of old cargos to coach our young teams. Football now don modernize and people wen dey till use standard 6 education for computer or digital age go always fail na. Amoo nor get cable to dey watch current football, same with Bosso, so how dem wan know tactics of modern football. Both of dem still dey in the 70s and 80s when na kick and follow type of football 9ja dey play back then. See manu teams, correct ballers when dia idols are barca and real players then. Can u imagine a player like yagaya, success, awoniyi, nwakaki, bello, okon, idowu, alfa, those are ballers wen go hold ball, dribble u wella na nak u plenty plenty goals, not this sorry fellows wen two dinosaurs parade as 9ja teams. I just dey vex, I swear. Our youth teams used to be our bread and butter, na small CIV go dey beat us, we don come turn dia wife for youth football. Amoo and Bosso come from the same school of thought, kick and follow, gather and play. Their teams na to plY long ball and hope se somebody miraculously gets the ball. Their forwards are crap, midfielders crap, defenders nothing to write home about. Nobody for this team warrant promotion to the next AFCON proper. The useless 14 wen be captain na -2. What a waste of time watching this coaches and their teams.

  • Proudly 9ja 1 month ago

    My bad, it ended 3;2

     
  • They tried but the players weren’t not good enough. They need to scout for high quality players.

     
  • Doctor Koyemi Oderinde 1 month ago

    This Under-17 team of Amoo is far better than the team of Manu Garba.

     
    • Dr Banks 1 month ago

      @Dr “I don’t understand”, Do you realise that Manu Garba’s team was the defending Champion?

       
  • lanre 1 month ago

    fatai amao won a match nd SUDDENLY he became a WORLD CLASS COACH in the opinion of some people who are haters of the highest order,he became the MATCH READER that nigeria has been waiting for over years………its obvious you haters just dont want to see MR GERNOT ROHR even if he won the world cup,but it only goes to show that you are rogues,miserables,mischievous nd evil

     
  • Where are those “NDI ROHR NEED TO LEARN FROM our EX… ???”

    Does it mean we cannot call on any indigenous coach to handle our underage football any more???

    If the indigenous coach can’t perform well in this cardet, how would they cope with the national team???

    U20 na kpako….
    U17 na Swegbe….
    CHAN na Tozo….

    I think this should serve as an eye-opener to those advocating for ex internation to handle our SUPER EAGLES

     
    • chinedu 1 month ago

      You just like cheap attention and you surely don’t deserve one. Where was Rorh and his PE certificate when screening was being done. Guess he was making plan for his losses during this pandemic. We are all keeping fingers crossed for the next nations cup.

       
      • Dr. Drey 1 month ago

        Hahahahhaa…. So you even have hope that we will be at the next nations cup…??? LMAO. Let me remind you tht b4 Rohr came with his PE certificate, your African guadiolas couldn’t even guarantee you a place at AFCON even as one of best loosers…..LMAO. These golden “day old chicks” at this tournament reminded us all of those dark days once again….LMAO

         
  • Coach Fatai Amoo had a huge slice of luck to even get this far in tournament which invariably earned Nigeria a ticket to the Under-17 Africa Cup of Nations later in the year.

    Losing twice to Ivory Coast within a short space of time means his Francophone counterpart is undoubtedly far better than him (to borrow a popular phrase that has been making the rounds).

    For me, I am just happy and a tad relieved that there is underage continental football to look forward to later in the year.

    The wound of not qualifying for the Under-20 Afcon left me with visible scars and I was fasting and praying not to go through it all over with the Under-17s.

    From about 2013 to date, our Under-17 teams have continued to look younger. This has to augur well for the future of Nigerian football and also enhances our reputation of putting forward genuine youngsters for these competitions.

    Nigeria fans who followed the recently concluded under 17 wafu cup of nations will posit to underwhelming standard of play displayed by the Eaglets and a dearth of modern football technical input from Amoo and his management crew.

    Manu Garba and Emmanuel Amuneke had provided avant-garde philosophies and approach in the execution of Nigeria’s under 17 football assignments from West Africa all the way to the global stage.

    This ‘gold’ standard that incidentally won back to back gold medals at this level has had the effect of elevating the expectations of fans to heights future under 17 coaches have to either match or exceed.

    The brand of football has to be pristine, the players have to be precocious and the outcomes have to be positive.

    Nothing wrong with those 3 elements, after all, ‘who no like beta thing?’

    But Amoo’s Eaglets aren’t leaving this tournament empty handed: they have obtained what the came for which is Afcon qualification.

    His team was lucky, Ladan Bosso, less so.

    It is now left for the NFF to plan ahead of the Afcon so that the Eaglets can have a more memorable tournament. If they have to overhauled the team’s management set up or even replace Fatai Amoo with a more flamboyant and dynamic manager, so be it but they should not leave it too late.

    Fatai Amoo, on his part might point to limited time for preparation as the reason for not serving the insatiable Golden Eaglets fans with the gaity of glamour that they have more recently become accustomed.

    But there can now be no excuse for serving the same insipid brand of football in the Afcon proper.
